A Lenten Offering
PICK UP AT THE WELCOME TABLE ON SUNDAY, MARCH 3 OR ASH WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6
Saint Mark's parishioners of all ages have an opportunity this Lent to make an impact in the lives of children through our partnership with Get On the Bus, a program that provides transportation and support for children to visit parents who are incarcerated. Quarter collection folders will be available at the Welcome Table on Sunday, March 3 or Ash Wednesday, March 6. Parishioners will place a quarter in one of the slots for each day during Lent (except Sundays) and then bring the folders back to church at the Easter Vigil or on Easter Day. Money collected will be given to Get On the Bus for their upcoming trip in May. We give thanks for Fr. Bill Leeson for suggesting these Lenten folders so that we may keep Lent in our homes and before our eyes everyday during the Lenten season.
